Horses for Sale

Buying policy

Donald is a regular attendee at National Hunt bloodstock sales in the UK and Ireland.

He just loves pouring through the Tattersalls, Goffs and DBS Sales book as soon as the thump is heard on the mat a couple of weeks prior to the event.
Realistically, we're not the size of yard who can buy readymade NH horses from the Flat, with BHA ratings of 80+.
Nor are we in that bracket where we can compete with the large stables in acquiring potential stars with winning Irish Point-to-Point form.

However, Donald is successful in gathering young, inexpensive horses from the Sales arena, or directly from selective, well-run studs, most of whom are unbroken but well-handled sorts.
These promising youngsters are carefully nurtured, strengthened, educated and introduced gradually into the fold at Dodlands Steading to commence an enjoyable life as a racehorse.

(Recent examples of such types are Snapping Turtle, Dali Mail, Paper Roses, etc.).

Horses available

We always have horses for sale, either outright or as a co-owner, and of course Donald would be delighted to accompany you to the Bloodstock Sales as well.
Don't hesitate to give us a call (see our Contacts page) if you want to ask any questions, or to arrange a visit to see the horses close up.
